We have two Year 4 classes at Tudor School. 4U’s class teacher is Miss Scott and she is assisted by Miss Penn. 4V’s class teacher is Miss Grundy and she is assisted by Mrs Gordon along with Mrs Milesan and Mr Fernandez-Winfield. The classes are also regularly taught by Mrs Graham.
Both classes enjoy a weekly sports session with Mr Higgins on Monday afternoons, as well as swimming on a Tuesday morning. Please ensure pupils have the correct kit in school for these sessions.
Have a look at our current topic web to give you further detail on the areas of study. Please bear in mind that this is a working document and the plans will be adjusted to suit the children in the class and their interests as well as adapting and incorporating interesting activities and events as they come up, if they are useful for our learning.
Our topic this term is ‘Up Pompeii’. During this topic we will be exploring what life was like during Roman times.
In English, we will be investigating a range of text types linked to the Romans, including both fiction and non-fiction. We will be starting off by writing our own reports and will be going on to explore texts set in Roman times along with Roman myths.
Our Science focus this term will be on Sound and Rocks. We will be finding out about how sounds are made and will even be designing and making our own Roman musical instruments in Design and Technology. We will also be exploring rocks, linking this learning to our Geography focus on volcanoes and earthquakes.
In Art we will be using a range of techniques to create artwork with a Roman theme and will be focusing on the use of painting techniques.
As well as undertaking research in Computing, we will be learning some coding skills and will try to create our own erupting volcanoes.
